    Yes, and thanks. But it would be nice to have some details.

    Hmm. Does it have fringe on both ends, Moo?


    And I had been trying to forget.

    Boarders are seen on all the oldest rugs.
    The oldest complete rug (warp and weft with supplemental weft = pile) is 2500 years old and is in the Hermitage.

    No, but the prices on some of the older stuff seem too good to be true.

    Thanks. I agree on the prices. I'm just thinking of this for our kid's room: https://www.rugvista.com/carpet/gabbeh-loom?artno=CVD15067
    Not a huge investment in case it turns out bad. Not authentic, but seems nice enough to play on.

    The alternative would be something from thenao.com, as recommended by JPHardy. Or maybe something from a local shop.

    Floorplanrugs.com has much more authentic rugs, and prices are good. I like a lot of their traditional rugs, but my wife wants more simple ones.

    Some of the other colors are even cheaper. Those prices seem unsustainable...but tempting
